"Let your hair Down, But NOT completely pls" Bangkok Favorite Tip by Rachelynn

Bangkok General: 633 reviews and 859 photos

Favorite thing: Yes, Bangkok is a place to shop, eat and relax. No doubt about it. It's generally quite safe and crime-free, but still, you will need to be on your guard. be careful of falling into the GEM SCAM. ( read about them in my other travel tips).

Be careful of pickpockets in crowded places too.

I would also say that bangkok people are usually quite nice and friendly.

Oh yes, pls be properly attired if you visiting temples and palaces, usually spaghetti straps/cut-offs are not encouraged. Yes the weather is hot but still it's better to respect the cultures of the local. Bring along a long sleeve shirt and tuck it inside your bag. Just whip it out and put on when you are outside the temple/palaces.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
